• My website is going hacker - switching from Blogger.com to Jekyll
    Jan 12, 2015

    This weekend I finally decided to re-build my website with Jekyll, and move away from Blogger.com! When I found about static site generators, I immediately liked the idea and decided to learn them. After doing a project with Jekyll, I thought it's time to switch my website to it.

    Its not a new discovery that priorities in commercial and scientific/academic software development are different. For example, if you need to delete an arbitrary record, but keep its data in the database, you just add "delete" attribute to the record, and set it to true when the record has been deleted.
